Conservatism

Matt Lewis Predicts ‘Long, Hard Slog’ For America

Matt Lewis writes that the “culture war is over and conservatives lost.” He’s looking at this in terms of political victory. I look at it from a spiritual perspective. Conservatives lost political victory, but on a spiritual level, America is losing and will continue to lose, because to be moral is to be counter-cultural in […]

It’s Like No One Knows What a Conservative Is Anymore

Akin eventually lost the election to liberal incumbent Claire McCaskill. Akin's position on human life is consistent with the Republican Party platform.
